iKeepm – Track What’s In Your Home

Imagine if the unthinkable were to occur and you were to lose everything you owned in a fire or a flood. What exactly would that include, and how much would it all be worth? If you’d been using iKeepm to maintain an accurate and updated inventory of your personal possessions, then finding those answers would be a breeze.

Homeowners, apartment dwellers, and anyone else with personal items they’d rather not lose track of can sign up for iKeepm to start putting together a home inventory list right away. The items you add to iKeepm are organized by room, so you’ll need to add separate pages for each room in your home. Once you’ve added a bedroom, for example, and then you can start typing in detailed information about your bed, dresser, clothes, and any other valuable items you keep stowed away nearby. Not only do you have space to add a description, category, and brand for each item you list, but iKeepm also prompts you to type in the model, serial number, date purchased, and value. When all your items have been added and saved, you can browse your inventory by keyword, room, or value.

iKeepm stores all your inventory information in the cloud, which means the data you’ve saved wouldn’t be gone if your computer was damaged, lost, or stolen. Not only that, but the application creates lists in a way that expedites the process of filing claims against your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy if you ever did need to file a claim in the future.

Practical Uses:

  • Make sure your homeowner’s insurance policy is up to date
  • Quickly access the serial numbers and values for any items you lost to theft
  • File an insurance claim and list all the items damaged due to a flood in your basement
  • Keep track of where you stored your grandmother’s antique silverware

  • Users can add photos to any items they list
  • Items can be searched by room, category, value, or serial number
  • Inventory information can be backed up and exported as a CSV file

  1. Maybe the most important thing about home inventory software is that it should be accessible from anywhere, not only from the PC.
